ActiveSync Delegate access on iOS Devices

I'm trying to update the way we manage mailboxes on our assistants iOS devices. At the moment, a PA will have 2 or 3 mailboxes on their phones, each one with the full username/passwords of the managers they look after. This is obviously a pain to administer and terrible security practice. Is there any way to manage this properly, using the PA's delegate permissions? Thanks, Jake

ActiveSync does not support delegate access.

And, Outlook for IOS (with Intune and conditional access ) won't either. this is a need not yet solved by many of us.
You could use IMAP to achieve access to multiple mailbox on a mobile device. Settings for IMAP Configuration: EMAIL ADDRESS: info@contoso.com (shared mailbox) PASSWORD: John Smith's Password (user's password) IMAP SERVER: outlook.office365.com (imap server) SMTP SERVER: smtp.office365.com (smtp server) USERNAME: john.smith@contoso.com\info@contoso.com (user\shared mailbox)
